Myanmar Biodiversity Fund Ltd. Gty. is Myanmar’s first independent Conservation Trust Fund (CTF) and it is incorporated as a nonprofit Company Limited by Guarantee registered with the Directorate of Investment and Company Administration (DICA) in July, 2019 under Myanmar Companies Law 2017 (Pyidaungsu Hluttaw Law No. 29/2017).
Internationally, more than 70 Conservation Trust Funds (CTF’s) have been established since the 1990’s and a great deal has been learnt how best to structure conservation trust funds to attract donor funding and manage them effectively and transparently. MBF has taken to heart the lessons learned from established CTFs in its design and hope to represent Myanmar in the Asia-Pacific Conservation Trust Fund Network.
